CHEVY CHASE, Md., March 4 (UPI) -- The U.S. Defense Department has certified that a JackBe mashup software platform can be used by government agencies.
U.S. company JackBe says its Presto enterprise mashup platform has received accreditation by the Department of Defense Intelligence Information System. DoDIIS certified that the Presto platform has passed the Authority to Operate at Protection Level 3, Community of Interest 4 and Certificate to Field requirements.
Officials said that with the DoDIIS certifications, government agencies that process intelligence information under Director of Central Intelligence Directive 6/3 can now implement the JackBe software technology. The Presto software mashup, a composite of different media files, is designed to efficiently and securely leverage internal and external data.
"Presto's certification is a testament to the value mashup-driven situational-awareness solutions have to agencies and groups like the Defense Intelligence Agency and the Defense Information Systems Agency," John Crupi, JackBe chief technology officer, said in a statement.
"We are excited and honored to have the opportunity to work with organizations like the DIA and DISA on national security initiatives."
